Flickr is Yahoo’s shared photo portal, and is mainstream by web users. Considered one of the forerunners in Web 2.0, creative local and small business owners can use this as a way to interact with local consumers.
I did a quick Flickr search for the Oceanaire in Minneapolis. Basically, it shows some people having a decent time. That’s fine, but it doesn’t make me want to visit. I did a Google search, and actually found a Flickr photo set of the Oceanaire in Seattle. This is a different story. Mmmmm… me want seafood… eeep eeep.
The Seattle photo set is a perfect example of Web 2.0 and user-generated content. It wasn’t from the restaurant itself, but from (I’m guessing) a local photographer who really liked the presentations.
